fought in eastern Cambodia and
in the, area surrounding the
DMZ.
In Cambodia, the fledgling
government of Lon Nol fought
for its life as North Vietnamese
and Cambodian rebel forces
continued to apply pressure and
harass major transportation
routes between- the landlocked
capital and Cambodia's port cit-
ies.
Although they launched sev-
eral major offensives to relieve
the beleaguered government,
South Vietnamese forces were
unable to make real progress in
the country.
In early June the South Viet-
namese army was dealt a decis-
ive defeat when they were forc-
ed to abandon the strategic
town of Snoul in eastern Cam-
bodia.
The Army of the Republic
of Vietnam's (ARVN) major
problems lay in lacking the re-
sources to adequately cover the
war's myriad of battlefields.
While part of ARVN w a s
bogged down with fighting on
the country's western front In
Cambodia, North Vietnamese

forces applied heavy pressure on
the northern front near the
DMZ.
As'the North Vietnamese ga-
thered their forces in that area,
U.S. B-52 bombers flew al-

sent an interim report to As-
sembly at that time.
The committee's interim re-
port focused primarily on ad-
ministrative changes to be used
in approving classified research
contracts. It also requested that
the wording of the Regental by-
law concerning the research be
altered to read "The University
will not engage in any research
contract, the specific purpose or
clearly foreseeable results of
which are injurious to human
life or welfare."
Many Assembly members at-
tacked this wording as being just
as vague and unworkable as the
present rule.
Most importantly, however,
Assembly voted to postpone its
decision on classified research
until its September meeting.
The move was hailed in many
circles, for it would enable As-
sembly to hold open hearings on
the issue in the fall when stu-
dents return.
The added possibility for stu-
dent input, however, was ap-
parently not a major motive of
Assembly in postponing its de-
cisions, as the vote to postpone
was taken after the chairman of
the Research Policies Committee
informed Assembly that the fi-
nal report would not be ready
until late August.

further review by the University,
was examined through the stan-
dard University grievance pro-
cedure with the Commission act-
ing as her advocate on the griev-
ance review board. According to
Commission members, the case
enabled them to realize what
they termeed the "inadequacy"
of the University grievance pro-
cedure.
In order to remedy the situa-
tion, Commission members work-
ed with representatives of the
Univeersity executive officers to
draw up a new University griev-
ance appeal procedure, which
was expected tomtake effect dur-
ing the late summer for a one-
year trial period.
Significant changes in the griev-
ance procedure include a change
in the composition of the commit-
tee which hears cases involving
University - employe disputees.
Under the new provisions, the
committee would consist of a
member selected by the employe,
and one chosen by the dean or
administrative department head
concerned. These two members
would jointly select the third
member of the group.
Under the grievance proce-
dures previously in effect, the re-
view consisted of the grievant's
supervisor, the area supervisor,
and a representative of the griev-
ant.
Other changes would give the
grievant the right to cross-exam-
ine the respondent in the hear-
ing, and the right to all informa-
tion used by the review commit-
tee in making their decision.

All this has cast some doubt
upon President Nixon's "Viet-

More and more experts are
questioning the president's con-

in the conflict can ever be end-

president of the Austin campus
of the University of Texas.
Leaving the University with
Spurr is his academic assistant
Ron Brown, who will become vice
president for student affairs at
Texas. As vice president here,
Spurr was in charge of the Rack-
ham Graduate School and the
Dearborn and Flint campuses, as
well as academic services such as
'%i admissions and financial aids.
The University is not planning
to chose a successor to Spurr's
vice presidency. A search com-
mittee is presently reviewing a
list of 80 candidates for the posi-
tion of graduate school dean.
Spurr's position as head of
Dearborn and Flint will be dele-
gated to two men as the cam-
puses receive their first chancel-
lors.
Leonard Goodall, formerly head
of the University of Illinois' Cir-
cle Campus in Chicago becomes
' chancellor at Dearborn.
Flint's first chancellor, Wil-
liam Moran, comes from New
York University at Stony Brook

where he has held the post of ex-
ecutive vice president since 1966.
Here in Ann Arbor, three new
deans will take office in the liter-
ary college and in ,the law and
social work schools.
Geology Prof. Frank Rhodes be-
comes the new LSA dean, taking
over for Alfred Sussman who
has been acting dean since last
year.
In the law school, Thepdore St.
Antoine, a law professor here
since 1966, replaces Francis Al-
len as dean. St. Antoine, an ex-
pert on labor law, has been the
chairman of University Council,
a student - faculty - administra-
tor board which is charged with
formulating rules for the Univer-
sity community and with advis-
ing the executive officers in
times of crisis.
Allen is expected to return to
the law school asda professor.
The third new dean to take of-
fice is Phillip Fellin, replacing
Robert Vinter as head of the
Schoolof Social Work.
Vinter has been acting dean
since Fedele Fauri left the post
to become vice president for
state relations in early{1970.

Dissidents win victories from
court battles with government

cause considerable financial bur-
den on its adversaries as well as
diverting their energies from
. other programs.
The government, they say, by
harrassing them with continual
criminal cases, is able to keep
them constantly on the defensive;
so burdened with trial defense
that they are unable to direct
their efforts in positive ways.
Such organizations as the Black
Panther Party, for example, has
had the ranks of its leadership
decimated by criminal litigation

with its three top national lead-
ers, Bobby Seale, Huey Newton,
and Eldridge Cleaver often fac-
prosecution simultaneously.
Others, on the other hand, ar-
gue that the American judicial
system is the most progressive
element of the government. They
point to this summer's three de-
cisions as evidence that the
courts are totally fair and just.
Either way, the cases repre-
sent a reversal of prior trends
and are heavy blows to the "hard
line" legal attitudes of the pres-
ent administration.
